Dear Mrs. Donovan

I love reading my work aloud to students, and I love their thank you notes!GD WBBB Spot Illus Scratchers
These excerpts are from Jan Pelletier’s third grade class at East End Community School in Portland, Maine. They all began with Dear Mrs. Donovan:

I liked that there are cliff-hangers at the end of each chapter. It’s very lousey that Bailey has lice. Get it? Lousey?—Yours truly, C.

Thank you for reading What’s Bugging Bailey Blecker? I really liked when Mr. Adams keeps acting like he’s a soldier. And I lost my bird once I felt bad like Bailey. And will Bailey lose her lice?—Your friend, H.

You are such an inspiration to me. I love your books because they bring back so much memories. Like when you said that Bailey had lice I thought about when last year some unexpected lice came to our house and when I went to bed I could not sleep because I was thinking that I would get lice. When I grow up I want to be as magnificent as you. —Yours truly, A.
